I'm thinking about putting that question on a rental application and so I am wondering if that is something that most people know or that most people don't remember.

Of course, if you'd like to tell me what brand and whether or not you are happy with it, that would be nice, but mostly I'm wondering if it is a reasonable question.
yes

And how are you going to confirm? Its such a strange question that if I didn't know I would put down "Hoover" and move on.

I have a shark. I spent good money on it because I was tired of crummy discount specials that burnt out in a year and clogged easily. I know it was a shark because my Mother told me they were supposedly as good as dyson. The last one was a Dirt Devil or a Hoover, but they were department store lines and pretty crummy.

The Shark I like. Their customer service is great too.
I also have a shark and love it. I can't justify spending tons of money on a vacuum that will get filthy dirty because of my many pets. I vacuum several times a day. I'm surprised it has lasted this long - 2 years.

Oreck and Rainbow.


Why would you want to put it on a lease though?? I would second guess renting from you with an odd question like that. It's enough that people have to have a credit check and background check, but to ask this question???

Our oldest dates from 1935 and is an Electrolux... this was during the Depression and it was a gift from the inlaws to my Grandparents... more like a treasure and so far 80 years on the job.

As a kid growing up I still remember the Electrolux salesman Mr. Spainhower... he sold electrolux door to door for 70 years and when my Grandmother would call him saying someone she knows needed a good vacuum he took care of it.

I still remember playing wagon train as kids sitting on the canister and have my brothers pull me around the house decades ago... and yes that Electrolux still lives and is serving out retirement in the garage to vacuum cars.

No. I can tell you it is a blue canister vac with a nifty auto retracting cord. But can not recall the brand without looking.

Our best vacuum is a 25 year old Electrolux canister vacuum. Truly the best one we have owned. We also have a Dyson and an Oreck but those don't compare.
